    SkyJacker 6" MonoLinear Kit

    Here is feedback from one guy who has been running the MonoLinear spring kit from SkyJacker for nearly 2 years now. For a low cost (under a grand), kit that bolts right on, I LOVE EM! They give MegaFlex for a simple basic bolt on kit and I have wheeled The Rubicon and many more of the toughest trails in North America. NO breaks, NO bends, NO problems whatsoever. I was the expiriment because nobody else had these @ the time. Everyone was afraid of sag, breakage, weakness and frankly... NONE of this happened to me. I have 35" tires, 9" Hi-Pinion Ford axles and locked front and rear. with a HEAVY trail rig. No sign of problems as of yet and 21,500 4X4 (trail) Miles and counting. In fact, I just got back from The Rubicon Trail again last week and my 95' YJ (Black Betty Bam-Ba-Lam!) performed like a Dream. If you want NO WELDING, NO FABRICATION & BOLT ON then this kit may be for you. If you can weld, You may want to do a SOA conversion to give you the same kind of lift on SkyJacker 4" Military Wrap Kit.

    Parts included with kit:

    New FRONT track bar.
    New U bolts F & R (fit D30-D35,D44 axles)
    New bump stops ( I tossed em cause I have limit straps & C.O. Shocks
    New Brake lines front & rear
    New boomerang shackles rear
    New tow shackles Front with tow pins
    New Quick disconnects for front swaybar
    1 1/2" drop pan kit for bellypan (tossed mine, HiP axles, CV Driveshafts)
    Rear track bar re-location brackets & bolts (tossed, bar not desireable for serious offroad articulation)
    Note, all shackles were greaseable type fittings
    New poly bushings for everything....

    Took about 2 days in the garage to bolt on.....
    MUST use of Short-Shaft CV kit on rear Driveshaft. :lightning
    SkyJacker Customer Service Was TOPS!
